How does the Veterinary Industry use ID Card Systems?

Staff IDProper identification in a company setting is a key component of maintaining secure operations, particularly visual identification. ID cards can be worn by veterinarians, vet technicians, reception staff, and temporary workers. Typically, ID cards are worn on badge reels or lanyards by the employee and should be highly visible to managers, and pet parents (the customers). That extra piece of identification can really help build trust among the vet and his or her clientele.

Pet ID CardsPet ID cards offer a plethora of benefits to both the pets and the “pet parents.” Here are just a few of the benefits: reminders of upcoming exams and vaccines needed; proof of vaccinations; a record of health information, rabies tag, and microchip number; clinic contact information and hours; and the convenience of a wallet-sized card with an updated pet photo. These ID cards can be created for an additional cost, thereby serving as source of revenue.

Access ControlMany private vet practices and large vet clinics invest in access control cards to limit entry to certain areas of the building. This extra layer of security helps deter unauthorized individuals from attempting to gain access to these sensitive areas. An access control card is an infallible method to preventing unauthorized persons such as intruders from gaining entry to restricted areas and compromising security.

Time and AttendanceFor time management of hourly employees, our experts at AlphaCard recommend time and attendance ID cards. These types of cards are an efficient way to keep track of when the person clocks in and clocks out for accurate weekly hour reports. Time and attendance cards often use magnetic stripes or barcodes that are scanned by a reader and integrated with third-party tracking software.

Business CardsLet’s face it — many of today’s business cards are flimsy and easily tear, especially when crammed inside a wallet. For almost all veterinarians and vet technicians, it’s imperative to have a high-quality business card to hand out at networking events, to friends & family members, and to acquaintances or industry professionals. PVC business cards are sturdy, meant to last, and are the perfect solution for a long-lasting business card.

Loyalty ProgramsLoyalty programs are a popular marketing tactic used by vets, as they aim to accrue points every time the customer purchases vet services such as vaccinations, wellness exams, or even vet products like canned food and toys. Once a certain number of points are attained, customers can receive a surfeit of rewards and discounts like free items, discounted food, buy-one-get-one-free promotions, and discounted vet services.

Holiday / Condolence CardsID cards can make excellent thank-you or holiday greeting cards, a positive marketing tactic that lets your customers know you appreciate them. Otherwise known as greeting cards, they can easily be personalized and sent out to pet parents as a way to thank them for patronizing the vet clinic. Cards can also be used as condolence cards when a customer’s pet passes away. Just a simple gesture that your vet clinic is thinking of them.

Promotional CardsID cards can be used as promotional cards, providing the customer with a certain discount or free health service for their pet once they patronize the business. Promotional cards are an effective strategy for marketing and are often given out as a reward for loyalty program points. Vets are excellent candidates for promotional cards, which can be produced from the same material that ID cards are made from – PVC plastic.
